  • Patent number: 10867031
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, methods, and computer-readable mediums for preventing return oriented programming (ROP) attacks. A compiler may insert landing pads adjacent to valid return targets in an instruction sequence. When a return instruction is executed, the processor may treat the return as suspicious if the target of the return instruction does not have an adjacent landing pad. Additionally, each landing pad may be encoded with a color, and a colored launch pad may be inserted into the instruction stream next to each return instruction. When a return instruction is executed, the processor may determine if the target of the return has a landing pad with the same color as the launch pad of the return instruction. Return-target pairs with color mismatches may be treated as suspicious and the offending process may be killed.

  • Patent number: 10417414
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and apparatus for performing baseline calculations for firewalling in a computer network is disclosed. The method involves defining a reference group for an executed software program, measuring signals in the reference group, measuring signals of the program, computing a distance between the signals of the program and the signals of the reference group, and taking an action if the computed distance deviates from a norm mode. The distance can be computed using a similarity matrix or other method. Measuring the program comprises observing behaviors of the program, collecting and analyzing data, comparing the data to baselines of the reference group, and comparing the behaviors of the program across a previous execution of the program. In cases where a program is known to be malicious, a reference group is not needed and a sandbox can be tailored just by copying the environment of the actual system.

  • Patent number: 10324819
    Abstract: Operations include diagnosing performance hotspots with minimal performance impact. A system selectively extracts a subset of in-memory application data, for failure analysis, based on application metadata associated with an application. The selective data extraction may be used to generate succinct reports that are customized to explore the specific vulnerabilities of each particular application. Application metadata identifies application data attributes for value extraction. The application metadata may identify, for example, a client attribute which indicates the client which requested the execution of a failed operation (or execution of an operation with a failed sub-function). The application metadata may identify a particular function, associated with an operation, that is to be analyzed in case of operation failure. The application metadata may identify a thread-local variable of a thread, executing an operation, that is to be analyzed in case of operation failure.

  • Patent number: 10310900
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for operating programs on a computer cluster comprising cluster resources. The cluster resources comprise non-virtual real hardware resources with variable configurations and virtual resources. Each cluster resource has a configuration description and a type. Each type has a unique type identification and descriptions of operations that can be performed by the cluster resource of the each type. Each program is operable for: requesting usage of the cluster resource specifying the type and the configuration description; and requesting a modification of the variable configuration of the non-virtual real hardware resource with the variable configuration. Execution of each program requires the dedicated execution environment on the computer cluster. The generation of each dedicated execution environment requires one or more dedicated virtual resources and one or more dedicated non-virtual real hardware resources with the variable configurations.

  • Patent number: 10275337
    Abstract: A method for processing distributed breakpoints when debugging a distributed application includes establishing a breakpoint in source code of a distributed computer program and executing the distributed computer program. Thereafter, an encountering of the breakpoint is detected in one of the processes, and execution of the one of the processes halted. However, halting execution of any other of the processes is delayed for a delay period during which a list both is generated of others of the processes in which the breakpoint is encountered and also is sorted in accordance with prioritization criteria. Finally, the sorted list is presented after the lapse of the delay period, individual ones of the processes selected in the list, and execution of the selected individual ones of the processes in the sorted list halted while halting of execution of non-selected ones of the processes in the sorted list is bypassed.
